    Default Any ideas?

    Yes, I am new, but am eager to learn from my mistakes. I am trying to calculate the total price with sales tax, the total amount due,, the amount paid, and print the number of dollars, quarters, etc to the screen. I am getting these 4 errors, and don't know what to do to correct them.
    Here is my code:
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class sales
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    //Initialized objects.
    String name;
    double unitprice,totalprice,totaldue,amountpaid,change,to talpaid,
    no_dollars,no_quarters,no_dimes,no_nickles,no_penn ies;
    int item_num;
    final double tax=(0.0925);
    //Input for calculations.]
    Scanner input=new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.println("Enter the name of the product ");
    name=input.nextString;
    System.out.println("Enter the unit price of the product ");
    unitprice=input.nextDouble();
    System.out.println("Enter the number of items sold ");
    item_num=input.nextInt;
    System.out.println("You paid "+amountpaid);
    amountpaid=input.nextDouble;
    //Calculations.
    totalprice=(unitprice*item_num);
    totaldue=totalprice*tax;
    change=totalpaid-totaldue;
    no_dollars=(int)(change)/1.00;
    System.out.println("The number of dollars of change you receive is "+no_dollars);
    no_quaters=(change-no_dollars)%0.25;
    System.out.println("The number of quarters of change you receive is "+no_quarters);
    no_dimes=(change-(no_dollars+no_quarters))%0.10;
    System.out.println("The number of dimes of change you receive is "+no_dimes);
    no_nickles=(change-(no_dollars+no_quarters+no_dimes))%0.05;
    System.out.println("The number of nickles of change you recevie is"+no_nickles);
    no_pennies=(change-(no_dollars+no_quarters+no_dimes+no_nickles))%0.01 ;
    System.out.println("The number of pennies of change you receive is"+no_pennies);
    }}

    Did you list your actual, specific errors? I can't really tell, because I can't really read unformatted code (use the highlight tags).

    All of them are cannot find symbol errors!
    name=input.nextString; //for period
    item_num=input.nextInt; //for period
    amountpaid=input.nextDouble; //for period
    no_quaters=(change-no_dollars)%0.25; //for no_quarters

    input.nextString
    input.nextInt
    input.nextDouble
    These are all methods. When you call a method, you have to follow it with (). If a method takes an argument, it will be contained within the ().

    no_quaters=(change-no_dollars)%0.25
    Have you defined the variable "no_quarters" yet?
